No opinion of CEO

I worked at Future Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

cafeteria, gym, fast-paced environment.
career advancement opportunities

Cons

Opportunities for advancement are good unless your progress is blocked by a primadona boss.
Too much of a jock culture and certainly a strong anti-intellectual strain within the organization. Environment is toxic.
They're not looking for thinkers or visionaries.

Advice to Management

Best advice for you: go public and bring in a professional management team. You have too many inexperienced people at the helm.

    I have been working at Future Electronics full-time

    Pros

    On site nurse, gym (outdated), cafeteria (expensive and not fresh), dry cleaner. If you have the right manager, you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful environment, politics, rampant nepotism. There have been layoffs despite what some may believe. It's a work until you drop atmosphere which will either make you or break you. Most likely the latter. Turnover is very high

    Advice to Management

    Bring back raises instead of the little feel good events. Appreciating your employees isn't about a free lunch, it's about proper compensation and workloads.

    I worked at Future Electronics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The most knowledgeable people in the industry. The environment is fast paced but in a good way.

    Cons

    Don't work here unless you like NEPOTISM!!! This place is patheic when it comes to playing favourites. Only friends of the managers get ahead and the managers get away with doing whatever they want. Examples: Hiring their friends because they can, moving large accounts to their friends, arriving late and leaving early.... The list goes on and on. The president says be open, let me know when an employee is being dishonest. Oh really? I did exactly that and nothing happened. I quit here when I just could not stomach the unethical behaviour of my manager any longer.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees! Get in touch, get a clue.
